Science App from Google

Science Journal App
If you really love science, then you will really love Google's new app.

The tech giant is hoping to bring out the curiosity in each of its followers with Science Journal, an app that measures and records data in real time, and then turns all that input into consumer-friendly graphs and charts.

Experimental enthusiasts can keep several projects running in the app, and with tools like an accelerometer, a light and sound meter, and a microphone (all the sensors already present in Android device). There’s really no end in sight to the types of projects users could explore. But just in case they need a little bit of inspiration to get started, Google has an entire guide of activities they could try with their new app.

Google notes that the current functionality of the app is still a bit limited (after all, it is meant for younger scientists, around 10 years old), but the company says that it's actively trying to improve the app by working with older, more established scientists in the field. And later in the summer, the company is also planning on open sourcing the app.
